Let me start off by saying that this picture does this recipe absolutely no justice. This is my microwave muffin that I make on an almost daily basis at work, and I had to share it with you guys. It is DELICIOUS, and even better yet, it is only 5 ingredients and takes less than 2 minutes to make! You can also use whatever fruit you'd like and the sweetener of your choice (I tend to use brown sugar, but agave or maple syrup works also!). It is the most simple recipe, and pretty healthy and filling - better than most things I would usually get at work. One of my favorites. Read on for the recipe below.
1 Minute Microwave Muffin
- 1/4 cup quick oats (I use Quaker)
- 1 egg
- about a tablespoon of sweetener (brown sugar, maple syrup, agave...)
- small handful of berries (blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
- 1 spoonful of chia seeds (optional)
Directions: mix the oats, egg and sweetener together in a mug or small bowl (I like using a larger mug because then the muffin doesn't overflow in the microwave). Make sure it is really well mixed together. Add in the chia seeds if you want to go with that option, but I highly recommend putting chia seeds in everything possible - you won't even notice that they're there!. Throw the small handful of whatever berries you choose on top and throw in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. I usually do a 1:20, but our microwave is pretty strong... Let it cool and then turn the mug upside down onto a bowl or plate and the muffin should just fall right out. Done!
